The MD PSC chairman, Douglas Nazarian, went right after PATH Allegheny, LLC as a phony front company that is not a public utility under MD law. Not a good start for AEP/Allegheny. Power company lawyers responded that the PSC could “broaden” the law. That is corporationspeak for “break the law.”
Also from the article:
After the hearing, James Thompson, attorney for Sugarloaf Conservancy, said he did not expect the PSC to accept the application. He said the application could be resubmitted to the PSC, possibly under another Allegheny Power entity, but he hoped it would end up under review by the county government.
